Dear Parents and Guardians,

Conferences for Wamogo High School students will be held on Wednesday, November 9 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:25 p.m. Wamogo Middle School conferences will be held on the same night from 4:00 p.m. to 7:25 p.m.  Parent-teacher conferences will provide you with information regarding your child's courses of study.  It also gives you an overview of the teacher's approach regarding expectations for meaningful learning.  We sincerely hope you will attend.  

We recognize that time slots are limited, therefore, conferences will be assigned according to the order in which they are received.  If time slots are filled and you do not get a conference time, you can schedule individual conferences with teachers by emailing the teacher directly.  

We consider parents as partners in edcuation.  Together we can make a difference in ensuring that your child receives the most from this essential educational journey. Please take the opportunity to visit the school.  We are proud of our building and our programs.  

The faculty and I look forward to meeting you on conference night.  Refreshments will be available in the cafeteria throughout the evening.  

Sincerely,

Jaime Rivera
Principal

Veterans Day Breakfast Information 

Wamogo is proud to sponsor its annual Veterans Day Breakfast on November 11, 2016 in the Wamogo Gym and Cafeteria. The breakfast is from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and will feature performances from our school band and chorus, with a demonstration from the First Litchfield Artillery. The event is open to all veterans in the community!

Donations are accepted upon entry to support the breakfast. 

If you have someone in your family or know a member of the community who has served in the United States Military, we want to hear from you! We will be displaying photos of our local veterans during the program. To accomplish this, please send a photo to us electronically accompanied by the  name of the individual, the branch in which they served, at what capacity they served, and the dates that they have served.   This can be sent to  bmatuszczak@rsd6.org. 

Come join us this Veterans Day to celebrate the contribution and sacrifice of all those who have served our country. 

Any questions can be forwarded to sbagley@rsd6.org. 

Thank you and we hope to see you!  
Student Support Services News 

First and foremost, we would like to extend a warm welcome to our brand new school psychologist, Gina Fleming who joins us this year from private practice. Her office hours are Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays until noon at Wamogo High School.

Addressing the mental health needs of students and their families in our district is a top priority for the student support services team in Region  6. Each year, we continue to develop programs and counseling initiatives which promote healthy choices and positive problem solving to all that we serve. 

This year, the school social workers and psychologists plan to further our engagement with students by opening up dialogue about the issues facing adolescents today; whether this be about drug and alcohol abuse, dating violence, bullying, peer pressure, body image, or planning for ones future. As we proceed into the school year, our goal is to foster these conversations by collaborating with our student population, parents, teachers, school administrators, and community resources, to embed these topics within the academic environment. By enabling meaningful participation of our students in these discussions, we can continue to build upon making Wamogo a safe environment for all to grow and learn. 

Our job is to ensure the safety and well-being of all those who attend Wamogo. Counseling is available to all students and we encourage those who may need support or know someone who may need support, to contact one of the mental health team members or a trusted adult in the building who can bring it to our attention. 

Per the State of Connecticut and the code of ethical responsibilities of our mental health staff, we are mandated to investigate any and all incidents in school in which statements are made that threaten self-harm, harm to others, or disclose abuse and neglect. No matter who refers this information to us, all will be followed up with a risk assessment and the potential for referral to outside therapeutic or emergency services. Any and all incidents of this nature will warrant parent notification.

For any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to connect with one of us. 

You can contact us via email:
Mr. Bagley -  Sbagley@rsd6.org
Mrs. Fleming - Gfleming@rsd6. org
Mrs. Baker - Lbaker@rsd6. org

School Phone Number: 860.567.7410


Thank you and have a great year!
